Data Analyst

Over the next three years, Tassomai is focussing heavily on extending and improving our product, as well as new product development.  As our data analyst you would play a key role in shaping the development of a product which is already helping students, teachers and parents and helping make it into one that can have maximum education impact for our users. You would be part of an exciting startup with a research-first mindset and have the opportunity of reflecting the impact of our work and helping us to continually improve on what we do.

What’s the challenge?

At Tassomai we have an ambitious vision for how the education system can be improved with edtech. We seek to continuously examine the degree to which our users benefit from their activity on the site and, with each new development, to measure whether we are improving the experience and education outcomes for our students.

You’ll be involved in working with developers, product designers, customer-facing teams and educationalists in designing metrics and reporting on their changes.

You’ll also join at the start of an exciting period of growth over the coming years. We currently operate as a single cross-functional product team and think of Tassomai as a single product. Next year we’re expecting to split into multiple teams, each with a tighter focus on a segment of users and associated product, as well as starting work on two new products. You would have an influence on how these different teams set up and measure the impact of their work and have a constructive input on helping different business units set and achieve their targets.
